Why do you have to close your mirror ? I dont see any reason.

Thousands of OSS projects get mirrored all around the world, even
without explicit knowledge of the devs, and - as far as I know - 
nobody feels pissed about that. What's the problem ?

What is there to coordinate on just some dumb unofficial mirror ?

Wait, you really feel kicked-away, just because your mirror isn't 
the only one anyomore ? Quite strange, IMHO.

Right, and you did a great job. You volunteered to do an dirty,
but important job, nobody else was willing to do. And I don't 
think anyone here won't appreciate that. 

So you *are* a valueable member of the team, and I don't see how 
some additional, uninteresting git mirror can change that fact.
